AFTER is Ryan Smith's TWILIGHT ZONE-esque tale of lost souls in an abandoned town. Utilising such simple, romantic themes as the power of imagination, Smith creates an atmospheric world that is both eerie and fascinating.
Ana (TRUE BLOOD'S Karolina Wydra) and Freddy (Steven Strait) meet on a dark bus ride back to their home town, although oddly enough, neither seems to know who the other is. Their meeting is cut brief when the bus crashes, and the two suddenly appear in their town, which is now completely empty. Scarier still, a monstrous cloud ring is evidently swallowing the area, closing in on the protagonists slowly but surely. If they're to survive this supernatural ordeal, they'll have to figure out just what the hell is going on first.
Are they dead? In an alternate dimension? Is it all a dream? Or perhaps some combination of each scenario? That's the guiding force behind AFTER, which takes its time developing the mystery and the relationship between Ana and Freddy, who eventually forge a rather sweet, believable bond as they search for answers. As the couple scavenge houses and attempt to find a way out of the town, they learn that they aren't alone.

The film is quite different to a lot of movies of the same genre, one these unusual differences is that it has very few actors who actually speak, aside from people used in flashback scenes. The only dialogue spoken besides comes from the two leads: comic book enthusiast Freddy (Steven Strait) and nurse Ana (Karolina Wydra). Both Strait and Wydra turn in good performances, and have excellent chemistry which carries the story along.
These characters meet on a bus journey, with Freddy, clearly taking an instant fancy to Ana, starting an awkward conversation. They are the only people on the bus, and initially believe they don't know each other. However, they quickly find out that they actually live in the same area, but that is certainly not the only thing they have in common.
Both of them wake up to discover that they are the only people left in their small town. Together, they form a partnership to quickly unravel the truth behind this isolation, and it becomes a race against time. As things become increasingly stranger, the characters find themselves wondering just what is fact, and what is fiction. What transpires, is a heart warming story, and the whole piece fits together. Films such as 'After' tend to be sometimes very confusing, but this was very easy to follow.
In short, nothing particularly overly exciting, but thoroughly enjoyable, with an interesting story and strong performances. Not a bad little film at all.
The DVD features are quite generous, with behind the scenes footage, deleted scenes and the trailer.
Glad to say this is a rare gem, and actually tells a story instead of trying to shock with over the top rubbish violence or nudity.
I won't go into the story to much but let you discover the dark tale for yourself. Its quite a slow moving film that builds tension and the monster actually looks really good.
I am not saying its a classic but for a low budget horror its well worth a watch..
"AFTER" It is more like a journey of two "souls" which happen to have more in common than what they actually know, being two strangers meeting casually, on a bus. It all happens with a bus accident, from here the real story and mystery begin, when I see, the same woman who was on the bus, being late for work, she gets up and notice she has hair under her armpits, like she hasn't been taking care of herself for long time,then rush out to go to work, aware she was late. At the hospital (she is a nurse) as she gets started on her shift, she notices something is not right, the hospital is empty, so she walks around the empty wards, to search for anyone, but only finds a sort of recording two people talking, and a timer clock going fast, attached to this recording machine. She leaves to explore the town and i could see the panic building up on her face, when she saw it was deserted. So she is practically freaking out being all alone, not knowing what the heck happened,when at night she hears some music very loud from a house near by, scared stiff decides to " investigate" not knowing who or what it is (or will find); after the initial spook she finds the same guy who she met on the bus, they are both stuck in this ghost town, and on the top of that, they found out there is a very dark nasty fog, eating the town bit by bit.
What i really liked was that, not once during the movie i was bored or i got tired, it was like the more i watched the more i was intrigued about what was happening to them, i mean you get that they are dead even before they do, but that's not so simple, there is so much more to it and then there is also the scaly part added to the suspense, a right mixture for a good a thriller/mystery; the acting was also good and i decided i am gonna buy it on DVD cuz it is one of those films i like to watch every now and then. The soundtrack also is awesome, by a guy never heard of. named Tyler Smith, Great job dude...
The only reason i gave 4 stars and not 5 was the end a bit cheesy to me, i felt it was easy/rushed and i would have preferred something not so obvious, but still worth every frame and time i spent watching it. recommend it to anyone who loves thrillers.
